Have you ever been stopped for drink-driving?

Arguing Your Special Reasons Case
Special reasons are a principle which states that even if someone is technically guilty of the crime, even for an offence such as drink driving where a ban is generally mandatory, the court may still not impose a ban.
If a defendant can prove that he or she had an unusual circumstance which meant that even though he or she committed the offence, he or she should not be disqualified from driving or receive points. The legal argument must be directly linked to the commission of offence and must be taken into account by the Court when imposing the penalty.
At Avoid A Ban, we will ensure your Special Case argument is thoroughly and expertly put together in order to deliver the best possible argument to the Court.
